7) Click OK to save your configuration.
8) Copy the Ladder Logic and data files from the sample program and paste them into your existing program.

Important: Take care not to overwrite existing data files in your application with data files in the sample application. Rename either the source or the destination data files, and then search and replace references in the ladder for instances of any renamed files.

9) Save and Download (page 18) the new application to the controller and place the processor in run mode.
